I remember Dale Carnegie saying “To make friends and influence people, never criticize them”.
Sure enough, I’ve been doing in anyway. Especially with the person I love most. I did it in very subtle ways but the fact remains that I did.
The last few months have been amazing between us. We became better friends. I thought I knew the reason but now I realize a big part of it was no longer being critical of her in any subtle way.
Actually, I’ve made a lot of friends lately. And if there’s one thing I did with all of them, it’s going an extra mile to be supportive and understanding.
I guess it works, huh?
